Allow formatting of bullets & numbers in lists
Bullets and numbers currently inherit the formatting of the first character in the list item. This is not very flexbile and creates issues when in one list there are bold items and regular items.
There should be an option to add formating to the bullet as well as the numbers. Also: there should be an option to use any kind of character of a dingbats font as a bullet. Bonus would be if any kind of shape could be used.

Can we expand the options for bullets to control the color and size of the bullet? Currently, you cannot control these, and it is not compatible with many brand style guides creators must follow.
Sure, you can add a space and change the color of the empty space to control the bullet color, but then you have to add a space to every item in the list which is tedious.
In the attached screen grab, (template instructions from one of my files), you see an example of this. Our project managers want smaller bullets
and the color to be the same regardless of what color the text may be.

I was manually making circles and placing them as bullets...
Was excited to see a bullets option. See that the bullets are teeny tiny and not customizable. Well, was a nice thought.
Back to copy paste and placing circles.

Pls allow for bulleted and numbered lists to include fully customizable coloring, size, font, and shape of the bullets/numbers.
Given the inflexibility of this feature at present, I have to make the bullets invisible and then add perfectly aligned reformatted objects over them in order to visually format their appearance as bullets, which opens up the door for the kinds of layout errors I'm trying to avoid by using automatically formatted bulleted/numbered lists to begin with.
This becomes especially problematic/impractical in the event of including multiple bulleted lists in a given doc...

Glad to see the bullets feature but it needs to be able to be customized!

At the moment everytime I want to use this it is less than helpful as I can't colour it and have limited options for the actual bullet.
It's a step in the right direction but just not actually as good as it could be.
AGREED. So glad this is finally a feature, but it is incomplete. You should be able to choose whatever symbol you want, whatever color you want.

Also: please stop assuming automatically creating a list if you start text with a number or a symbol like +, * or - followd by a space and text. Please make that at least configurable to just tab (instaed of space) or no automatic at all. These "AI" features are only half way clever!

I would be glad if recoloring and resizing bullet points were added, but if there was also an option to use a shape as a bullet point that would be amazing too!
